After horrifying audiences with The Woman, director Lucky McKee has returned with his latest feature, one injects some comedy and teams him with Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me). All Cheerleaders Die premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall — in the Midnight Madness section, of course — and now it’s gearing up for a release this summer with the debut of the first trailer.
While we were mixed over all, we said, “All Cheerleaders Die excels at really not caring about who should live or who shouldn’t because its very premise sees mortality as a rule meant to be broken. McKee and Sivertson fearlessly spice in lewd jokes about the girls’ lack of body temperature, embrace taboo by letting Williamson turn his Terry into the epitome of a misogynistic monster, and still find the time to frame bikinied breasts and asses in close-up whenever possible.”
Check out the trailer and poster for the film starring Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, Reanin Johannink, and Tom Williamson.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
